War Scouts: Hezbollah's military recruitment... (updated)

Thousands of children, teens prepare for apocalyptic battle against 'evil'Not your father's Boy Scounts...

WorldNetDaily has the story:
TEL AVIV – Hezbollah leads a youth movement that instructs tens of thousands of children and teenagers in military tactics and indoctrinates them with radical Shia Islam beliefs – including the waging of a final, apocalyptic world battle against "evil," according to materials found by Israel during last month's war in Lebanon.

"Hezbollah established its Imam Mahdi Scouts to attract Shiite children and adolescents, to influence their hearts and minds and to prepare new generations of youth indoctrinated with radical Shiite Islam, which propounds the idea of the return of the Mahdi (messiah) as one of Hezbollah's central principles," states a report by the Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center at Israel's Center for Special Studies.

"Hezbollah wants to create a new generation of operatives for its own ranks who will take part in its violent campaign against Israel," the report states.
Hizbullah's Armed Children's MilitiasHere's an informative quote that I just found on MEMRI... Hizballah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallh's deputy, Na'im Qasim in an interview on Radio Canada:
"A nation with child-martyrs will be victorious, no matter what difficulties lie in its path. Israel cannot conquer us or violate our territories, because we have martyr sons who will purge the land of the Zionist filth... This will be done through the blood of the martyrs, until we eventually achieve our goals."
Here's more from that same article:
"Hizbullah has customarily recruited youths and children and trained them to fight from a very early age. These are children barely 10 years old, who wear camouflage uniforms, cover their faces with black [camouflage] paint, swear to wage jihad, and join the Mahdi Scouts [youth organization]...

"The children are selected by Hizbullah recruitment [officers] based on one criterion only: They must be willing to become martyrs."

"The children are educated from an early age to become martyrs in their youth, like their fathers, and their training is carried out by the Mahdi Scouts youth organization... [This organization], which is affiliated with Hizbullah, teaches the children the basic principles of Shi'ite ideology and of Hizbullah's ideology... The first lesson that the children are taught by Hizbullah is 'The Disappearance of Israel,' and it is always an important part of the [training] program...
Of course, not all of these children will become front-line soldiers, suicide bombers or missle launchers. Those with a knack for marketing will surely go to work for... Hezbollywood!

Update: Bryan at HotAir discusses The Children's Jihad
It’s sobering to look at a video like this one. I’m raising my kid on Christ, doing well in school and Ben Ten. These people are raising their kids on suicide bombing and terrorism.
